every pitch is just -- gets bigger and bigger as the game goes on. it's unbelievable. great win here to send these fans off with a win. now we get to go back and cleveland and take care of business. >> tom: i have to ask you about your good friend, david ross. he drove in what turned out to be the deciding run. threw out a runner at second base. caught jon lester for probably the final time. what are your thoughts about the man you call grandpa like a dad, like a mentor, and i don't know if everyone -- i was pretty emotional there seeing him with that big at-bat, driving that run in and throwing the guy out. we talked before the game about this could be his last, and we got the w. >> tom: congratulations. we'll see you in cleveland. >> thanks, tom, appreciate it. >> tom: back to you. >> joe: the winning pitcher is

kevin, guys, all yours. >> kevin: all right, joe. welcome. it's been 25,950 days since the cubs last won a world series game. that streak is over. pete rose, alex rodriguez, kevin burkhardt. we'll have interviews and reaction. more from wrigley. the cubs, of course, we'll hear from them. they extend their series and their season. it will go back to cleveland. aroldis chapman delivering tonight. alex said this would go back to cleveland and indeed we are. maybe the cubs got a little bit of a break tonight too, and these fans something to celebrate. quiet at wrigley, but not any more. this is going to a game six in this world series. post-game show.
>> kevin: welcome to the post game show. presented by "lethal weapon" on fox. this world series not over just yet. high atop wrigley field where the cubs finally get a win in the world series at the home ballpark for the first time in a long time. these fans have something to celebrate here on the corner of tonight an exciting ballgame. 3-2 the final as the cubs get the victory. come into our set. welcome. post game show is coming your way right now. a lot of decisions in this game that were very interesting but i'll tell you one thing. aroldis chapman, when he came in we were thinking an eight-out save. did you think he was going to be able to do it? >> alex: not really.
clean inning in the ninth. i thought it would be lester to chapman but this is an unconventional way lest tore chavp man with eight outs. >> pete: when are we going to understand it's not a gamble for joe maddon to bring chamman in the game? i wouldn't be surprised if he starts. he pitched his butt off. the guy was throwing just as hard to the last hitter as he was to the first hitter. >> frank: we thought it was a quick hook for more the mentality of all of the fans on deck, going to chapman, he got it done tonight, moving to cleveland, joe maddon did it once again his way. >> alex: i was more than more concerned about the battery of carl edwards jr. and contreras, i don't want my last 12 outs of such a pivotal game to come down to those two young guys. i would investigator have loss and jon lester.
high two off his career high, it certainly worked for this cubs team. we've seen it before. lest nert playoffs gets it done. we all thought maybe coming out a little early but he gave the cubs exactly what they needed tonight too. >> frank: until the sixth there were no base runners. he could stay in the zone. he kept the base runners off base. a big win for the team and chapman, once again, was phenomenal. >> pete: like all great pitchers he pitched a good ballgame and didn't have his greatest stuff. a testimony to who this is. >> alex: i played with jon lester it feels like over a hundred times. he's a tremendous competitor. he had both sides working. tony did not help him behind the plate much. he pitched well enough. if jon lester didn't pitch eight innings and hand the ball to
not a quality start. >> kevin: chapman, eight outs. bottom line, the cubs are alive and the series goes back to cleveland now for a big game six, and these fans are excited. why wouldn't they be here in wrigley? stay tuned for those of you right here and for your late, local news but we're continuing post-game coverage of the world series. turn it over to fs1 at midnight eastern. we will be with you for a while. these fans have a feeling they'll here for a while too. post game on fs1. emotional night at wrigley. bill murray, dexter fowler and the cubbies. lester and ross. couple old vets getting it done. we've got a game six, fellows.

hardest hit of the game 69-year-old wade philip on the sideline, no shoulder pad the, no equipment and it happen second quarter. this is on the field beautiful defensive play. 51-yard pick six, gave the broncos the lead at the time 10-7 but on the sidelines, here is what occurred melvyn gordon partially blocked on the play, into coaches, takes out phillips and the game delayed ten minutes as huddled around the injured coach, carefully put on a stretcher, loaded into the car and there you see he didn't wiggle his finger to let everyone know we had movement in his extremities. the team responded and also rallied after wade's departure candy carman has more. obviously some good news for bronco defense of court nader wade but when he was down, the players certainly with but the range of emotions. man, what was
